Paper Secrets SYAO2 - With this Ring

Here is the sketch and lists for Paper Secrets Scrap Your Ass off Week 2. Again, I had to use 4 of the 8 items and 1 of the 3 techniques.

3+ photo corners
border punch


Right away I knew which photo to use - I have been keeping this photo of our wedding bands and my engagement ring on my scrapping table for a while looking for the right sketch to use with it.

I used ribbon, rub ons, brads and my border punch. My technique again was misting. I really love mists lol, even though I only have 3 of them! The patterned papers, striped ribbon, chipboard and "promise" sticker are all Cosmo Cricket Everafter. 

Here's a closeup of the Everafter sticker, chipboard, two of the 5 brads used, and my Deja Views transparency sticker (love those!)

For the ribbon, I actually layered the Cosmo Cricket ribbon on top of a wide grosgain(I think) that I picked up from that ribbon section at Michaels with all the generic stuff. I pinned into the folds I wanted then stitched down the centre using the thread that was used to alter my dress (sneaky!)

This is the rub on. Its from some cheapie dollar store pack... but I really can't resist rub-ons. You can also see a bit of the inking I did. I used DIs Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain, with a thicker application of the SM and just edging in the WS.

Hope you enjoy... and most of all, are inspired!
